Lip Enhancement

Full lips are often seen as the crowning element in a well-proportioned face. Lip enhancement using dermal fillers can create a desired effect with minimal invasiveness and downtime. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance produced by the body that helps create volume. As we age, the hyaluronic acid decreases. Juvederm and Belatero are two dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid. Both can be used to restore volume and soften wrinkles. These products are very effective in “plumping up” the lips to define the vermillion border, where the red part of the lips meet the face, and improve the undesirable vertical lines around the lips. The procedure typically takes 30-45 minutes under local anesthesia. Results typically last 9-12 months.
